A 34-year-old member asked:
Urinary incontinence: To fully evaluate this problem, I would recommend an examination of your abdomen and pelvis, as well as a digital rectal exam to check your prostate. A urinalysis is indicated, and perhaps some blood tests if the urine is normal. If there is an infection in your bladder or prostate, antibiotics will be necessary. If this is due to a bladder problem there are medications for that as well. Good luck
